Malcolm X publicly denounced the Big Six and their March on Washington in 1963 as a failure for three main reasons. First, he did not agree with their inclusion of white allies due to his black nationalist ideologies. Second, he thought that the March on Washington was being orchestrated by the government and that the Big Six were just the supporting role and deemed them “Uncle Toms.” Lastly, Malcolm believed that revolution was meant to be bloody and hostile, and that the men failed at creating a revolution because they were open to compromising, He felt this march was not only a failure as a revolution, but also a betrayal to the black community.
